Thumbs Up!

This is my 200th post! For some reason that seems crazy to me. To think.. I’ve had 200 hundred things to share. Along the way I’ve made some new blogging friends and that really means a lot to me. Even though we don’t know each other in real life I think of blogging as a very personal thing so I think we are beginning to know each other pretty well.

Speaking of personal things, my 6 week OB check up was on Wednesday and it went well. I’ve healed correctly and the pain I was having turned out to be no more than me over doing life and the fibro. I’m cleared to exercise and return to normal activities so that’s been a huge weight off of my shoulders. I can clean again! Hooray! Kinda kidding.

During the appointment things got pretty serious as we talked about how I was feeling emotionally. I was honest about feeling miserable and ended up being diagnosed with post-partum depression. This really was not shocking at all. I knew I was struggling and the fact is I was getting worse and worse. The doctor put me on Zoloft and set me up with a therapist that I will meet next week. Addressing this was more of a relief than being cleared for activities as I have seriously feeling shitty for more than a few weeks. I’m not upset about any of it, I just want to feel better and already know how the game of depression goes, so I know I’ll be doing much better in a little while.

Such a happy topic for my 200th post :) 

Really, it is kinda happy because I’m getting the help I need.

Well, I don’t have much else to say right now, and the baby is about to start fussing wildly so I will end it for the day here. I hope everyone had a great week!

    1. Thanks, it was hard I was giving myself pep talks while I was waiting for her. What made it easy for me was that she brought it up. Of course I got all ready eyed right away but it is what it is. I can’t wait to feel better!

  1. Congratulation on writing and publishing your 200th post! That is incredible and you’re inspiring me, so don’t be surprised if I mention you when I write my first post in such long time that it feels like I’m starting over again. I’ve actually thought about ditching my old blog and beginning a completely new one, but not sure that’s a good idea so haven’t done anything until I decide for sure the direction I want to try.
    Anyway, I’ve talked enough about me for awhile–now it’s your turn to talk about me…LOL 😜
    So glad you are getting help for your post-partly depression….once the Zoloft kicks in you should start to feel a lot better, and that’s a good thing.
    Have a great weekend and I look forward to reading your next 200 posts!

    1. Of course when I write too quickly and hit ‘Post Comment’ without doing a thorough review I leave out words and also get auto-corrected from ‘partum’ to ‘partly’! Sorry about that. 😚

    2. Thanks! I looked at my old blog that I did for a lot longer and I am certainly posting more here! I think I only got a little over 300 on that one (if that many)
      It’s hard to decide what to do when you want to write again, losing readers is a biggie, well, it was for me, but luckily I had a few that followed me over :) I wanted to be able to speak freely without my family getting their panties in a bunch tho so I started fresh. It was refreshing though!
      It could take a few weeks to really feel better but after only taking it for two days my son asked me why I was smiling. I guess that’s how rare it’s been and I guess it’s starting to work or I just have great hope it will :)
      Ps you can talk about yourself anytime! I value your thoughts on everything! Have a great night :)
